. they didn't until after clinton, after he was re-elected in the mid-terms in 1998, didn't take off until then. same thing in the george w. bush administration i was also a professional middle east advisor there. i just think it's not going to happen. there was no discussion here about halting settlements critical. you can say they're critical, make me uncomfortable. it's not talking about the 67 borders. those are things needed for the say. we get confused for our hope for peace and reality for a state. what palestinians want and need and arabs and muslims want and need is a state for the palestinians. whether peace comes, too, that's secondary. they want and need a state. the requirements for a state are 67 borders and halt to settlement activity. the other piece here that obama said clearly, i think should give us some caution, is the palestinians should drop their push to push this to the united nations and do it through this direct dialogue and direct negotiations and dialogue. >> not very likely. >> that's never happened. we had 20 years of direct dialogue. it's never happened. the
still are very scared of what happened in 1994. the narrative that emerged from that election was a vote for the assault weapons ban contributed to the democrats losing their majority in the house and people in the senate and in the congress don't want to relive that, for better or worse. >> people like tom foley out in spokane. you're right. speaker of the house lost in that race. >> democratic senators from red states where mitt romney ran are vulnerable. here we have mark pryor of arkansas, begih of alaska, mary landrieu and a lot of these people who are passionate on gun rights will remember every election from now on and vote accordingly against these people. >> well, chris, it's true that i would suggest to senators that there's some things worse than not being re-elected. but i also think they give the gun lobby way too much credit. let's take harry reid, who has coward before the gun lobby if harry reid thinks it's gun lobbyists who got him back in the election, he's nuts. he lost the male vote. it was the obama coalition of union voters, young voters who put harry reid back in o
up to the 2014 primary elections. about 15 minutes. >>>> two years ago the president told a lie about the supreme court decision called citizens united. the case struck a huge blow. the president of citizens united is up next. he has proposed document series since 2004. please welcome david bossie. [applause] i'm president of citizens united. it has been a big year, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary. it is great to be back here as we come together for our 40th time. citizens united is doing it again this year, where we get a chance to show off some of the groundbreaking conservative films available today. conservatives need to think of new and innovative ways to develop and deliver our message to a broad our audience. one of those ways is through film. fellow conservatives, i am going. fall, but the conservative movement is as strong as ever. more voices are being heard here in this hall and across the nation because we are fighting for our rights and the traditional american values we all share. we believe in american exceptionalism, not obama's socialist agenda. unfortunately, so
to the last election. rove wastes no time firing back. >>> also today, a deep dive. previewing president obama's trip to the middle east this week. will expectations grow for a major peace plan progress before the end of his presidency? >>> good morning from port aransas, texas. >> it's monday, march 18th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." >> now here's chuck todd! >> big thank you to maddie and noah salazar. on spring break at port aransas, texas. first reads of the morning. by the way, see the beach when it's sleeting behind me is kind of a nice little picture there. >>> right now republican party chairman reince priebus is unveiling his own autopsy of what went wrong in 2012. while the report blames the process more than gop prince ips or policy position it also admits more problems than you might expect. >> there's no one reason we lost. our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primary debate process needed improvement. there's no one solution. there's a long list of them. >> pretty brutal report. based
and before the election and same is true today. he didn't set the reset button on this trip. it was embarrassing and refused to go to the parliament to address the officials. it's self-styled and hand picked group of students and young people and he told them to ignore their elected representatives that somehow risk a verse and their parents who have some sort to overcome the legacy of mistrust. to tell holocaust descendants there is no healthy reason for skepticism is embarrassing and wrong. >> sean: ryan. >> let me give you an idea how little the current administration knows about the muslim brotherhood. they are celebrating the fact that the syrian rebels chose as the interim prime minister as an american, but this guy is tied to the u.s. muslim brotherhood. and u.s. ambassador for syria and the syrian brotherhood backed this individual and they said i don't know what his political affiliations are but i'm sure he is more texans. >> sean: thank you our distinguished group of guests. news continues. we'll see you next time. >> greta: tonight. bob bechel said what? >> i tel
minister netanyahu, his party did not farewell in the last elections. both men seem to be tied up with a lot of doe mostic affairs. what is the sense with president obama coming over there and he ran the central issue for common israelis these days. >> well, the bond between the united states and israel is still very strong even if the personal chemistry between netanyahu and president obama is not strong and it has been widely reported they don't have a very good working relationship. one of the main reasons for coming not just to israel, but jordan and the west bank right now. that was for the united states to shore up friends. the united states still as a friend of israel. if you look back at the larger regional issues, the chaos around us. the united states is worried about its friends and that israel is surrounded by an increasingly hostile region and egypt is no longer a reliable ally and jordan could face their own internal threats and syria on the border is in a state of chaos and mayhem and iran is also working on its nuclear program and the united states wants to come gi
today. and you were the first, as we said, iraq war vet to be elected to congress. when you hear about these casualties today on the ten-year anniversary, what is your reaction? do you believe that it needs to be more part of the discourse there in the beltway? >> without a doubt. it is not part of the discourse because most folks don't have skin in the game. less than 1% of americans have served in iraq or afghanistan. it goes to your point. we should be talking about this. it is the defining political issue of the last ten years. and it is just a colossal, strategic failure of the bush administration to know that we had almost 4,500 of america's best and brightest killed in action, over 32,000 wounded in action, and over 100,000 iraqis dead for an unnecessary war. and a war that should basically never have happened and also a war that we put our troops into harm's way, basically over a religious civil war without the amount of troops that the military generals asked for. >> what do you remember when you see this piece of news that we're reporting today? what do you remember back to t
trying to figure out why they lost so big on election night. they lost african-americans, asian americans, latinos, young people and women. those are big problems but republicans are ignoring the real solutions. look, i think you're going to continue to have a problem. >> the problem is with their policies. there is no nice way to tell seniors you're changing social security. to tell latinos we're profiling you, we're suppressing your vote. we don't need a smile. we need new policies. thank you for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> religious war. let's play "hardball." good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. i'm not washington. let me start tonight with this. you can't steer a car with the engine off. it's problem with the republican party today. get rid of the cultural right, abortion and gay marriage, all those began who moving to the republican party over prayer in public school years ago and you kill one giant engine. get rid of the whackos as john mccain cats them and you lose another engine. all the libertarians who just want government out of their
, the economy is waiting to be unlocked. enthey went on to say that's why we desperately need to you elect at least 17 democrats. 17 democrats in the house would give them the majority come 2014. >> yeah. look, it is a very, very ambitious goal. i believe the last time that the president has won that number of house seats in a six-year election, a mid, six year midterm was 1822. he has got his work cut out for him. i would suggest joe biden remember, house republicans were elected to do a job too. and they're doing, for their constituents exactly what they said they would do in the last election. so it is not as if republicans would bend to the president's will simply because he won an election. bill: that point is that the focus is on the debt. which one might argue would not be there unless you had house republicans pushing for that or at least holding the line. one final point, you say biden has given the game up here. what does that mean? >> yeah, look, i just think if there were a real charm offensive, if they actually wanted to find a deal, what would you not see is the vice presiden
election. stricter photo id laws in pennsylvania and shortening the early -- taking away the early voting in sunday in florida. my colleague took him to task on that. let's listen to michael. >> how does priebus reconcile his approach and agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist. you can show up any time. it's what you say and what you do when you get there that matters most to people. >> priebus was asked about steel's criticism right there this morning by luke russert. he dodged the question. i think you will see the dodge. let's watch. >> what's your response to him? >> well, i'm not going to -- i'm not going to engage in an argument with michael. but, you know, the fact of the matter is you have to have the resources to be able to have an effective ground operation in minority communities. if you don't market and brand your party on a regular basis i think that you're going to continue to have problems. that's a big piece of what we're trying to do here. >> you know, it was well advertised by the republican party, not by yo
. with dustwuns it will be a major election issue for democrats opposing strong gun laws. in other words, the real democrats won't show, which in an off year would be a very bad idea. if there's a credible primary challenge, a vote would absolutely hurt an incumbent democrat. that's from howard green. let's look at they states now. it looks to me, sam, that you have states like out west, i want to see this list of human. pryor in arrange saw, in arc, mary landrieu, kay hagen, there's a lot of senators who have to run in conservative states, mitt romney states. how do they deal with this issue this. >> you know the left, the progressive community hasn't made that much of a stink about the assault weapons ban. that might be because they recognize the political difficulties, but my sense is they recognize the assault weapon is using a very small actual number of violent crimes, violent gun crimes. they think there's studies that suggest it's down to about 2%. they recognize the bill would have a much bigger impact on reducing gun violence. so when i talk to progressives, they don't get caught up over
for re-election in those kinds of states. so we're seeing some of this debate shifting to the states. i mean, because of this difficulty of getting these federal laws, some states have already started passing their own. colorado's governor signed the law there yesterday. we saw the very sweeping law in new york, although already they've had to back off a little bit on magazines because the problem is they didn't actually manufacture the kind of magazines they were talking about. having said that, rana, could this be where this debate is shifting? joe biden's somewhat optimistic belief notwithstanding. >> i think so. i think new york is going to get attention no matter what because of mayor bloomberg being involved in this issue. again, i hope he continues strongly down this path because i think he has the power to sort of look across both sides of the aisle and really bring some unity here. i think it's interesting that some of these western states are actually moving ahead and passing laws. i think that goes to the point that we have this idea that, you know, particularly in the west a
think also that he is looking at the fact that he has some democratic seats up for re-election in 2014. and in 2014. and in some states that it's going to be very difficult to hold. places like west virginia and arkansas. and so he's, he's really not quite ready. i think to sort of put his members on the line for this. so he will allow these to be offered as amendments from the floor. but there are also likely to be some amendments from the other side. it was interesting, too, to see vice president biden yesterday, up with mayor bloomberg. saying that the white house is basically not giving up this fight. but it sure doesn't seem how you get these things done. >> i thought, i'm glad you made that point. i thought joe biden saying -- remember newtown, pointing his finger, very telling. because particularly joe biden is someone who understands the math of the senate you've just laid out. john, do we, at this point, so now the big piece of the bill now appears to be background checks. can you give me your assessment of the political landscape? does that and the other few things that are a
days, three days before the election and scare the with its out of everybody. and a lot of these politicians know that. and there's a lot of fear of that. and a lot of concern about that. the truth is not going to come out. that's not what the letter's going to say when it hits. and the campaign they're going to run will say, they want to take away their guns, they want registration so the federal government can come in and take your guns away. that's what the debate will be. >> governor dean, as someone that had a strong rating from the nra, i want to point to some of the reaction comes from senators who are probably going to have a hard time on the vote on this bill. mark pryor says in a statement, with i don't take gun advice from the mayor of new york city. i listen to arkansans. there's a little bit more room in the statement from senator mary landrieu. senator landrieu has a great deal of respect for mayor bloomberg on a great deal issues, but the senator will be listening closely to her constituents on this issue. you hear that and look at the poll, it is overwhel
no excitement anywhere in kentucky for his re-election. it doesn't mean some people aren't going to vote to reelect him but only 17% of the people in kentucky, or voters in kentucky said they would definitely reelect him. only 37% of republicans. that's not a place to be if you're trying to be re-elected for the sixth time. >> michael: not looking good for mitch. let's turn to a more sober topic, the topic of guns. i remember you coming out so poignanty after the days in new town and kentucky. it's not an easy way to talk about guns in kentucky. let's talk about it the way that dianne feinstein did. is it impossible the way she said to fight the nra? >> it's not impossible to fight the nra. the senate made a mistake in bringing the assault weapons ban to the floor first. that's not only the hardest thing of all the ways we can--the proposals we're proposing or talking about for gun safety. it's not only the most difficult to past but it's the one that makes the least difference. first we're talking about background checks and then high capacity magazines and then trafficking weapons. i w
leaders from around the world traveling to rome on the eve of the inaugural mass for newly elected pope francis. however, there is controversy over who is attending. nbc's jay gray has details from rome. >> reporter: working through the rain, crews in st. peters square, vice president joe biden leads the u.s. contingent as leaders gather for the inauguration of pope francis including argentine president, who had lunch at the vatican today. the two had a contentious relationship whearlier. they did not release details. zimbabwe president is also in rome for the ceremony. he's been banned from travel in the european union since 2002 after allegations of elections fraud and human rights abuses. he's able to visit the vatican because it's a separate state and not part of the eu. >> while one country may have difficulty with another person or delegation being present, we repeat, we invite no one. we inform. those who wish to come, come and take part in the ceremony. no one is refused. no one is invited. we welcome all who come. >> reporter: hundreds of thousands are expected to come, packing
against that, and again, we had an election in november 2012. right? one of the issues was mitt romney with paul ryan has his running mate said we are going to privatize medicare turn into it a voucher system. the american people by a margin of almost 5 million people said we don't want that. third thing wrong is it repeals the affordable care act. it repeals obamacare, which has already kicked in. which has been there now two years, which the american people like, which is working, which even republican governors now have been buying into seven, i believe it is latest republican governors who have accepted the expansion of medicaid under obamacare. kids can stay on their parent's health insurance until they are 26. insurance companies can no longer deny kids coverage because they have a preexisting condition. by next year insurance companies won't be able to deny anybody coverage because they have a preexisting condition. that kicks in. and also these insurance exchanges making it possible for small businesses to ban together have been set up now in most states e
relationship. both of them have been recently re-elected. they more or less are on the same wavelength when it comes to israel's security. and the two of them are going to do the best they can to make this trip a success for their own domestic political reasons as well. >> dana, ten years ago, as you know, we started a war on the basis of false information. today we're looking at a war in syria where the question of who is using chemical weapons, even if they are using them, can't be confirmed. is it your view, dana, that our reluctance to engage in syria is a direct result of our experience in iraq? >> well, certainly it's a response to that, martin, but also the situation in syria is a lot more ambiguous and is not exactly clear what can be done there. but certainly the hesitation in responding here, not necessarily hesitation, but a skepticism about whether reports are to be believed or not, is very specifically a reaction to the gullibility that was expressed a little over ten years ago that led us into that war. so that's why there is every reason to be taking this cautiously and slowl
and he didn't. and the bottom line is -- >> you won in the elections. >> i had to win in 2009 and christie and bob mcdonald, blue states and purple states, we laid down a 50-state plan. >> bill: as a former party chair of the state of california what do you people remember whether you won or lost. that's what counts. not if you happen to have a little deficit, and in fact michael steele went on to say when we were handing out checks i don't believe reince priebus complaining. >> so reince is just being silly. and i understand he wasn't complaining about debt and concerned about debt when i was write checks to wisconsin when he was chairman and he wanted to win the legislature and governor which they did and they were all on board about going into debt to win. >> when did republicans turn into democrats. it's all overshadowed and sabotaged by infighting. >> bill: this is the circular firing squad for which republicans are famous. grace nap ol 'tano will be with here today, neil king, and of course you'll be with us too throughout the morning, and mike i w
with the american people and that will get you elected, but not this type of attitude now where the president gives with one hand and takes away with the other. the american people are smart. they're looking for results and not looking for finger pointing. election of 2012 is over. >> megyn: what happened was the president and the republicans had this war over first it was the fiscal cliff and the president kind of won that one and then it was the sequester and the president didn't really win that one and then his poll numbers started to drop precipitously and then came the charm offensive. >> well, we're only, you know, like a week after the charm offensive took place, so, what is motivating joe biden to be so off-message regarding the number one in charge. >> it was a democratic national committee campaign event which obviously is a partisan committee, but he to get republican election-- >> and there are cameras. >> i understand that, but he appeals to people in order he needs to get the house back and i'm very certain if paul ryan, john boehner, or mitch mcconnell went to rnc-- >> are they on th
the election but continues to win policy. also on twitter fred wilder says when did senator reid become the most powerful republican in the united states. i want a real democrat as a majority leader. teamster said sadly, this is true, senator feinstein was against filibuster reform so she is now reaping what she was sown >> bill: she was not there with tom harkin and others. and geoff merkley for oregon who wanted to get rid of that filibuster, but she was on the other side. well, sadly for her. maybe she regrets it now. ron is out in elgin, illinois. hey, ron what do you say? >> normally, i would say good morning, bill. but it's not a good morning. the leaders have failed us again. this issue just irritates me right to the core of my bones. >> bill: yeah. >> caller: we have lost our soul as a nation if 203rd graders gunned down in less doesn't turn this nation to do something about the assault weapon ban, i don't know what will. >> bill: go back to the example of we talked about it, australia australia. right? when they had the brutal massive killing back t
tougher to defend in a general election. limits on guns. >> you know, it must be awful to lead a public office and concluding that even though you might believe you should take action that you can't take action because of a political consequence you face. what a heck of a way to make a living. >> nbc's senior political editor mark murray is here with more on this morning's first report. i know it's 2013. everyone says it's too early. golly. everything we just played there seems like it's not too early. one thing i was fascinated by and i thought that clip did it really well. it seems as though paul -- rand paul and marco rubio are sort of watching one another on immigration but on a lot of things to, particularly on marco rubio's end to make sure there isn't a lot of space between marco rubio and rand paul. am i over evaluating? >> certainly rand paul has been in the spotlight a lot. he ended up getting the cpac straw poll. don't put a lot of stock in that but he still won it. he had his big filibuster a few weeks ago. >> right. >> then this big immigration speech. you are right. you ar
will have several meetings and working dinner with newly re-elected prime minister benjamin netanyahu. of course, no secret that the relationship between these two leaders hasn't always been a warm one. besides discussing peace between israel and palestine what a-- oe of the other major topics is iran's nuclear program. the president encouraged their leaders to move toward peace. >> now is the time for the iranian government to take immediate and meaningful steps to reduce tensions and work toward an enduring, long-term settlement of the nuclear issue. >> i want to bring in matt welch editor-in-chief of "reason" magazine and mckay copins. good to see both of you. >> thank you so much. the white house managing expectations, matt. what do they want out of this trip? >> i think what obama is trying to do besides serially lower expectations is talk directly to the people of israel and the palestinian authority themselves. he is going to give a talk to an informal talk at a youth center in the west bank and a talk to israeli students. he thinks if he moves around the political structure he
's very simple. it's to stop noncitizens and especially illegal immigrants from voting in u.s. elections. federal courts have been split on the issue. an appeals court did strike it down. this issue has not gotten a lot of attention. it could prove to be a mid one when the court wraps up its term in june. >> a lot of people wonder if a lot of illegal immigrants are starting to vote and according to one poll, they said .001% of florida's voters turned out to be illegal. so why there is so much attention for what really is a small problem? >> reporter: i find the answer is a lot like a lot of things in politics. there are two political parties that run in parallel existence and see completely different things. there are a lot of republicans who argue it is a big deal and it's just not paid attention to. a lot of people say it's an issue that fraud is not being addressed properly and you have studies on that the democratic side who say it's hardly an issue at all. it's something that's spurred the political debate and i'm not sure it will be settled. >> the republicans just finished up thei
of their performance in the 2012 elections. >> a boost for backers of same-sex marriage. former secretary of state to hillary clinton joined ever- increasing list of politicians to come out in support of same-sex unions. clinton jointer husband, former president bill clinton, president obama and host of conservatism also previously opposed same-sex marriage and now support it. >> if a few years ago bill and i celebrate as our border miracle of our life. i wish every opportunity for that parer for parents to see t >> to deny them the chance to live up to their own god- given potential is not right. >> the u.s. supreme court will hear arguments in proposition 8 andy defensive marriage act case next week. the rulings are expected this summer. >> in new national poll shows support for some same- sex marriage at an all-time high in the last 10 years, public opinion has undergone a reversal. in 2003 more than half of all americans wanted to outlaw same-sex marriage. now nearly 60% or to legalize it. the poll was conducted by labor research for abc news and the washington post. >> we will take a break. a
the elections i think netanyahu thought he was in charge and he was rooting for mitt romney, lots of talk about potential attack on iran. the president has since won convincingly, netanyahu has lost some ground at home. i thought reading the pool reports that come back, netanyahu was complaining about all of the challenges he's facing putting together his new government and obama basically said, well, talk to me about it. look what my problems on capitol hill are, and netanyahu said, yeah, but we have more moving parts over here, parts in our country don't move at all, that's the problem. >> i had my doubts about whether or not he was going to shift netanyahu's opinion on him. i felt that from the -- remember that photototof netanyahu and obama sitting on the couch in the white house? >> the oval office. >> do you remember that? >> sure. being lectured. >> the whole body posture and so forth. but some of the video emerging from this trip is so authentic and even the words of netanyahu describing obama and what he means, what obama means to him in this relationship. a true friend. it was very au

card. call now! >>brian: we're learning about the first ever cyber attack in the u.s. election. it happened in florida last year. authorities say hackers tried to get absentee ballots in an attempt to sweep three primary elections. >>> tiger woods and lindsey vonn confirming their relationship. they say they were friends for some time but over the last few months they became very close and are now dating. that's not all. the two posted cutesy photos of them together on their facebook pages. as you can imagine, reaction is pouring in. mike on prompter can't believe it. others say don't have much faith in the tiger woods-lindsey vonn relationship, but at least she's used to things going downhill quickly. that's nice and optimistic. anna, build on that. >>anna: six minutes before the seven is the time. the unemployment rate for our veterans has gone down in the past months but still nearly two points higher than the national average. our next guest is trying to change that. kevin o'brien is managing partner of veteran recruiting service. good morning to you. >> thanks for having m
